California Medical Association (CMA) Senior Vic­e President of Government Relations Janus Norman has published his annual Legislative Wrap-Up, which provides an insider's take on what went down this legislative session. In it you will read about California’s completely unpredictable, totally chaotic legislative year.

As you can imagine, the legislative process was completely upended by the COVID-19 pandemic. CMA staff worked diligently to adjust to ever-changing dynamics, as both houses of the Legislature scrambled to implement social distancing guidelines and condense their calendars.

In the end, CMA successfully maintained state funding for physician services, defeated proposals to increase or add new administrative burdens onto physicians, and secured a number of Executive Orders to protect medical practices as they faced a pandemic unlike any seen in the past century.

CMA’s 2020 Legislative Wrap-Up, “California’s Completely Unpredictable, Totally Chaotic Legislative Year," provides more information on these fights and the many bills CMA followed this session.

The wrap-up is available to members only at cmadocs.org/leg-wrap-2020.
